Today wondrous things happened
I was given gifts
I never expected
Mementos of how
I have impacted on lives
Hugs and best wishes,
A rare event in any teacher’s life.
My understanding of my own worth
With acclamations of affection and thanks
Photos, gifts and a film of me and them,
Interviews and the like,
What made him such a good teacher?
It appears the excitement, the energy,
Commitment and purpose.
Kids loved coming to my class,
The highlight of many a day
So I am content that my time was well spent
I can now relax
Knowing my job was well done.
